Radical Japanese Electric Motorcycle

First generation of electric motorcycles was all about making them work without much consideration about aesthetics. Second generation went into improving performance but still failing at making them visually very attractive. A third generation is now trying to give these e-bikes some custom sex-appeal.

Example, this Japanese creation called ZecOO announced to go soon in limited production at a price of about $70,000. Problem is that performance is not what you could expect with such a radical Superbike inspired design. Top speed is only 75 mph and you will need to charge the bike every 55 to 80 miles. Nothing to get too excited about. Built by Znug Design.

    Looks cool, but damn that’s expensive for something that would barely handle the commute of most of the riders I know.

    I like the looks, but if the performance can’t back up what the looks promise…no thanks. If this represents ” the third generation ” I guess ZERO is on what, 4th or 5th gen?

    I completely agree with this cat above who calls himself nobody….cool but the price tag is nuts for a bike that only hits 75 mph and needs to recharged that often ….cool concept…..keep the inventive brain ticking
